About the Author

Alvin Levin (b. 1914, Paterson, NJ) studied at City College and Brooklyn Law School. Courted by The New Yorker, New Directions and others, Levin mysteriously disappeared. He died in 1982.

John Ashbery was born in Rochester, New York, in 1927. He wrote more than twenty books of poetry, including Quick Question; Planisphere; Notes from the Air; A Worldly Country; Where Shall I Wander; and Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror, which received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the National Book Award. The winner of many prizes and awards, both nationally and internationally, he received the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation in 2011 and a National Humanities Medal, presented by President Obama at the White House, in 2012. Ashbery died in September 2017 at the age of ninety.

James Reidel is a poet, translator, editor, and biographer. Over the years, Reidel has published poems in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, TriQuarterly, Verse, The New Criterion, Ploughshares, Conjunctions, DMQ Review, The Adirondack Review, and The Battersea Review. His chapbook, JIM'S BOOK (Black Lawrence Press, 2013), marks Reidel's time as the writer-in- resident at the James Merrill House fellow in Stonington, Connecticut. Reidel is also the author of Vanished Act: The Life and Art of Weldon Kees (University of Nebraska Press, 2003), the definitive and only biography of Kees. Reidel's translation works includes Thomas Bernhard's poetry cycles, In Hora Mortis and Under the Iron of the Moon, which was published as a single volume by Princeton University Press and was later selected by PEN as one of its 2007 translation prize finalists. Other translations from the German include two novels of Franz Werfel, Pale Blue Ink in a Lady's Hand and a newly revised and expanded edition of The Forty Days of Musa Dagh (both David R. Godine, 2012), for which Reidel received an NEA translation fellowship in 2009. James Reidel is married to the potter M. Lori Reidel. They have three sons and currently reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
